Big Little Week: Every Sorority Girl's Dream
Total Sorority Move

Open on your dorm room. Purple and white streamers run the length of your ceiling and balloons fill the surface area of your tile floor and bedding. Your desk, dresser and comforter are covered with an assortment of your favorite candies, goodies and letters. Freshly baked cupcakes and cookies sit there, quietly packaged away waiting to be eaten. And there in the center of your desk, your favorite bagels. This is it, you realize, this is big little week.

It’s the week all sorority girls dream of. Big little week is reputable in any sorority’s new member process around the U.S. It’s spoken of endlessly on Pinterest, sorority blogs, and it’s the first thing you hear of in recruitment. Big little week. It’s like your birthday and Christmas all wrapped into one, they say. It’s the best week of your life, they say. And as it has now rolled around for me, I understand what they meant.

Day one is filled with a surprise room decoration. You walk into a room that no longer resembles your own because it’s entirely decorated over. The following days are a whirlwind of overflowing baskets filled with everything you ever wanted. Kate spade earrings. Sorority letters. Wall décor galore. Lilly Pulitzer nick knacks. Your favorite candy and snacks. Possibly even a baby pool or mattress pad. Whatever you asked for, no matter how big or small, your big delivers. Well actually, its delivered by shirtless guys, men in overalls offering lap dances, or mysterious people in gorilla suits. It’s like waiting for your named to be called in a lottery, albeit slightly embarrassing, but good fun all the same.

Then the end of the week rolls around. You feel a few pounds heavier and a million pounds happier. You feel spoiled. You feel loved. It’s all wrapped up with one big round of surprises, gifts and a reveal. And thats when you realize, just like the Grinch, Christmas (or in this case big little week) means so much more than you thought. Not only is it a week all about you, with presents left and right, but in the end you get the best present of all, a new bff.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
